B

ond star Daniel Craig is not your typical Hollywood movie star, although he has been voted the sexiest name in the world and has a glamorous movie star wife, the lovely Rachel Weiz he seems the sort of chap who would prefer to stay at home then attend celebrity laden gala’s and openings.

Born in November 1968 and inspired by his mothers love for the theatre, his mother spent a lot of time at the city’s famously leftwing Everyman Theatre, when in its heyday Bernard Hill, Julie Walters, Willy Russell and Alan Bleasdale, strutted the boards. The young Daniel would sit and soak up the atmosphere of the Green Room, enjoying the larger-than-life camaraderie and it was this, and seeing the familiar faces on TV, that convinced Daniel that he wanted to become an actor. Daniel Craig is a fine modern example of how things can turn out for the best, after graduating from Guildhall School of Music & Drama he went on to achieve uproarious success of the series Our Friends In The North, he was cast by the tabloids as tough northern totty. Stereotyping TV offers came flooding in, lifestyle magazines were constantly knocking at his door everything was set for his to become TV’s macho eye candy. Instead, loathing this trivial publicity, he turned down TV offers and walked away with his eyes set on a more glittering prize.

“The question I keep asking myself while playing the role is, am I the good guy or just a bad guy who works for the good side”?

He went on to hone his craft in a series of arthouse and European productions, entering the mainstream only when a part demanded deep emotional exploration and eventually, inevitably, his remarkable intensity saw him recognised at the highest levels. First Sam Mendes snapped him up to star alongside Tom Hanks and Paul Newman in Road To Perdition, then it was the turn of Steven Spielberg in Munich and then James Bond. Daniel Craig is the grittiest of all the greatlooking men who have played James Bond over the last five decades. He has also brought a dark and somewhat sinister side to Bond in an interview in 2011 he stated “The question I keep asking myself while playing the role is, am I the good guy or just a bad guy who works for the good side? - Bond’s role, after all, is that of an assassin when you come down to it”. In October we were treated to the third instalment of Daniel Craig as Bond in SKYFALL the 23rd Bond film of the franchise which coincides with the 50th anniversary of the series, and in its first week it has broken the box office taking a staggering $20.1 million and the critics called him Bland Bond - I think the public disagrees!!!

Málaga

A Cultural City...

M

alaga City is not just the entry and exit point of the Costa del Sol for us expatriates, it is also the birth place of some very famous Spaniards. The most famous has to be Pablo Ruiz Picasso, known as Pablo Picasso, the famous artists know for his painting, sculptures and ceramics who was born on the 25th October 1881. Picasso is regarded as one of the greatest and most influential artists of the 20th century, he is widely known for co-founding the Cubist movement, the invention of constructed sculpture, the co-invention of collage, and for the wide variety of styles that he helped develop and explore. Among his most famous works are the proto-Cubist Les Demoiselles d’Avignon (1907), and Guernica (1937), a portrayal of the German bombing of Guernica during the Spanish Civil War. It is little wonder then that the people of Malaga are proud of the fact that Picasso was born there and it was a celebratory day when the King and Queen of Spain inaugurated the Museo Picasso (Picasso Museum) on the 27th October 2003. The museum is located right in the heart of the Historic Centre of the city, with the dramatic backdrop of the Alcazaba Fortress and Gibralfaro Castle close by, and is literally two minutes walking distance from Malaga Cathedral, the magnificent old building has been painstakingly restored to befit the importance of the works of the great artist, and houses 285 works donated by members of Picasso’s family, the largest donation was by Christine Ruiz-Picasso, widow of the artist’s eldest son Paul Ruiz-Picasso she donated 14 paintings, 9 sculptures, 44 individual drawings, a sketchbook with a further 36 drawings, 58 engravings, and 7 ceramic pieces, 133 works in all. Her son, Picasso’s grandson, Bernard Ruiz-Picasso donated another 5 paintings, 2 drawings, 10 engravings, and 5 ceramics.

14

SPOTLIGHT MAGAZINE

The collection ranges from early academic studies to cubism to his late re-workings of Old Masters. Many additional pieces are on long-term loan to the museum. There is also a library and archive including over 800 titles on Picasso, as well as relevant documents and photographs.

Aston’s luxurious Toyota-based new city car is not without appeal to the rich and open-minded By Steve Cropley

I

f there was a prize for the daftest car to be launched so far this century, the new Aston Martin Cygnet would have to be a strong contender. This, at least, is what most people who buy city cars will think.

For most of them small means cheap, and the Cygnet breaks every rule. At £30,995 the baby Aston costs more than double the price of the £12,500 Toyota that donated all its major components: body, chassis, suspension, engine transmission. For the extra cost you get a proper Aston paint-job, a superb hand-fitted and bespoke interior (with as many leather hides in it as are needed to trim a DB9), a series of body mods that give the Cygnet its own visual identity (including a superb extruded aluminum grille) and the magic of the Aston Martin name.

What’s it like? The Cygnet is quite different from any other Aston Martin. At just three meters it is the 62

SPOTLIGHT MAGAZINE

smallest Aston in history. It is its first dedicated city car, and it is probably the slowest Aston in modern times, achieving just 106 mph flat out, and sprinting from 0-60 mph in 11.5 seconds more than twice the time it takes any other contemporary Aston. Why do we need it? First, because Aston realizes that many of its owners also need nippy inner-city transport, and would enjoy driving a luxurious baby Aston if there were one available. Second, because tough taxes are coming for manufacturers of thirsty cars; the Cygnet’s combined consumption of 54 mpg, plus its modest 120g/km CO2 output, help counterbalance Aston’s monsters. In the flesh, the car is impressive. The Aston paint process gives it a glass-like paint finish (they use the same finishing techniques as for a £150,000 Aston) and once you sample the comfort of the hand-finished interior, with every surface covered either in handbag-quality leather, Alcantara or first-quality carpet, you start to see the millionaire’s case for the Cygnet.


The major components may be by Toyota, but the see-touch-feel details are Aston’s own, things like new instrument graphics, special metal inner door handles, a superb polished alloy gear-gate, a bespoke alloy shift lever, and lots more. On the road, unsurprisingly, the car is all Toyota iQ, quietened somewhat by its denser trim. Even the tyre sizes are Toyato iQ, though the wheels (standard eight-spoke alloys or an optional 16-spoke set) are designed in Aston’s own studios. The 97bhp four-cylinder engine feels and sounds energetic up to 50-60 mph. The optional CVT transmission gives easy stepoff at traffic lights. In this car it it’s a much better option in a city car than any fiddly five-speeder. The Cygnet can produce a quite refined cruising performance on motorways if necessary; though passing performance isn’t its forte. The steering is feather-light and nicely accurate. If you haven’t sampled a Toyata iQ you’ll be surprised by the sheer pleasure that flows from using its scooter-like turning circle.

Should I buy one? Depends who you are. If you’re rich and are open to the concept of a luxurious little city car that can be selected from options list of a new Aston supercar, you may love the Cygnet. Around 400 people, nearly all big Aston owners, have already ordered one, and the company reckons it can sell 1500 a year. If you’re not one of these people, don’t worry about it.

Toyota iQ, Mini and the Aston Martin Cygnet growing at an alarming rate with all the top brands now producing small, compact vehicles aiming to take a slice of the action. However the compact concept hasn’t just been embraced within the automobile industry the pet industry which is worth an estimated € 96 million a year, has also adapted and a new breed of pets have been born with the emergence of the “Micro-Pet”.


Below we take a look at some of the smallest and cutest micro-pets Micro pigs make brilliant pets - they are intelligent, affectionate, can be house-trained and learn their names. They need a large garden, should be kept in pairs and can live for 18 years. Falabella miniature horses are intelligent, easily trained pets. They can only be ridden by very small children. Pygmy hedgehogs not your most conventional but were last year’s must-have pet. They are similar to a hamster in that they are nocturnal, enjoy exercise wheels and live for three to five years. They are different because they are carnivorous and prickly.

Mulco - Design forever time‌. Since its Creation in 1958 by Mr. Muller (Muller and Co.), Mulco quickly became a prestigious brand that stood head to head with other competitive Swiss watches. With its suggestive designs and impeccable quality, this exclusive brand superseded the expectations of the demanding European, American and South American markets. Mulco maintained its place in the market until it was bought by one of its competitors in 1973, and for three decades the brand remained a sleeping giant only to be reawakened in 2006 by group visionary entrepreneurs. Never forgotten by its followers for its impressive lines and distinguish quality, Mulco stood the test of time, mesmerizing customers once more with the brand’s new look. Mulco Watches Inc. gathered a dynamic group of designers and watch manufactories creating a fashionable yet unique collection of bold new models with playful vibrant colors, original textures and solid materials. Most importantly, the new Mulco inherited the classic seal of quality that people have come to expect from the brand.

Nuit Tag Starting with the elegant models of the Nuit Collection that combines the harshness of cold steel with warm gold and pink gold with a classic crystal display.

Mulco is now committed to continue this legacy by constantly updating models and improving the brand; altogether creating the best piece of time you can wear. And forever designing time.

Blue Marine Tag With a splash of colour and the white ceramic bezel detail covered by Shapiro glass all combined with a colored belt. This elegant and sporty line prides itself on the use of it’s name of MULCO.

Forever Yours... The Montblanc “Infiniment Vôtre” Jewellery Collection

Montblanc has unveiled “Infiniment Vôtre”, the new women’s fine jewellery collection which draws inspiration from the most powerful and passionate of emotions – Love. Just as throughout history, lovers have signed their declarations “forever yours” Montblanc has signed this most heartfelt of collections “Infiniment Vôtre”. For this celebration of commitment, be in true romantic love or the everlasting bonds of friendship there could be only one possible motif – the infinity symbol, whose gracefully intertwining curves have neither beginning nor end. The Montblanc Infiniment Vôtre collection interprets the 130

SPOTLIGHT MAGAZINE

infinity symbol in precious pink gold, whose soft, warm hue echoes the depth of the emotions evoked. On each piece, a brilliant diamond is set within a Montblanc star emblem, a discreet signature and sparkling reminder of the uniquesness of each special relationship. Six equistietly crafted pieces comprise the Montblanc

Infiniment Vôtre collection; a ring, earrings, a necklace, a pendant, a bracelet and a bangle. Rich with meaning yet pure and essential in design, each is a contemporary token of love or friendship to be offered with feeling, worn every day and reassured for always. Like an embrace, the Montblanc Infiniment Vôtre ring entwines itself around the


finger, while the earrings evoke sinuous curves against the neck. On the necklace and bracelet, the infinity symbol is strung on a delicate gold chain which is adjustable and finished with a charm in the shape of the Montblanc star emblem. The pendent and bangle are bolder in style, each an uncompromising modern statement of commitment.
